This journal provides a forum for professionally informed commentary on issues affecting contemporary American politics. This includes but is not limited to issues engaging parties elections and political participation the news media interest groups Congress the Presidency and the Courts trends in public finance presidential popularity congressional productivity in contemporary historical or comparative perspective.The journal is motivated by the view that social scientists historians and legal scholars frequently have important insights into the concerns that arise in contemporary politics and government drawing upon the disciplinary knowledge at their command. Yet they frequently lack a publishing outlet willing to print the analytic reasoning that gives weight to the resulting commentary. The Forum is designed to fill this gap.We contemplate a journal free of fixed position and requiring no particular verdict with respect to policies institutions or processes. Wellreasoned discussion disciplined by reference to established bodies of knowledge or aimed at stimulating the creation of such knowledge is the goal of this journal.

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?

III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications
